Image Now Gallery were very proud to host the Sound+Vision exhibition which kicked off the Dublin Bowie Festival.
David Bowie’s legacy is perhaps as broad as any other cultural figure of our time. His unique presence in contemporary culture had and continues to have a profound impact on the world of pop music, breaking boundaries in visual art, as well as making fearless fashion choices.
To celebrate the second year of Dublin Bowie Festival, Image Now Gallery hosted a typographic poster exhibition that explores the work of David Bowie. The show featured 25 posters, created by 25 creatives from Dublin and London – one for every studio album released by the icon during his five-decade-long career.
The brief was to contribute an original typographic piece that represented the retrospective of David Bowie's legacy. We asked all creatives to consider the era and political movements from the albums inception, as well as his own personal movement across musical genres and his reimagining of self, creation of characters and multiple personas.
The exhibition ran in conjunction with the scheduled events for Dublin Bowie Festival with a percentage of the proceeds being donated to The Irish Cancer Society.
Image Now Gallery were delighted to partner with Hen’s Teeth and Hang Tough Framing on the printing, framing and online sales for the exhibition, as well as partnering with the sponsors, Hennessy Ireland, who provided absolutely gorgeous concoctions on the night of the launch on the 4th of January.
The exhibition was open to the public from the 5th until the 10th of January. The feedback from the public was incredible, with nearly €2,300 being donated to The Irish Cancer Society.
